Carol Stratton, 75, passed away peacefully on November 5, 2022 at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical
Center in Idaho Falls, Idaho. She was the loving mother of Darin Stratton.

most of her life in Victor, Idaho on their small farm along Trail Creek surrounded by family. She attended
Victor Elementary School, graduated from Teton High School in Driggs, and attended Ricks College in

lessons, as a secretary at Victor Elementary School, and sold Avon throughout Teton Valley for many
years.
She belonged to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She was a valiant disciple of our Savior
throughout her life. She loved her callings in church that involved being in the primary and working with
the children of the ward. She enjoyed doing arts and crafts and visiting with friends and family. She was
always working on a project or doing acts of service for those she loved. She spent many hours cutting,
gluing and decorating scrapbooks filled with pictures and quotes. She loved her sisters and spent
countless hours with her sisters by her side, especially her oldest sister, Connie Solomon. She will be
remembered for her positive, optimistic outlook on life and her love of the savior. She shared her love of
music through playing the piano and most recently playing the piano for her branch sacrament
meetings.
The role of being a mother was the greatest joy of her life. She was a kind and loving mother to Darin
and raised him in their family home in Victor alongside her parents. She loved having a car full of Darin’s
friends and teammates to take to ball games and cheering them on. She was an avid animal lover
especially dogs.
As an infant she contracted Polio and lived with its lasting affects her entire life. She endured many

vibrant life full of love.
